Acetate and vellum together

Good evening blogger peeps, it's night and I usually don't post at this time. It just happened that I finished making a card, and then I saw on Instagram Hannelie's card for CASology, and matches the cue, this doesn't happen that often. So I looked at the time, it's past 9, and I have quite a bit of time to write a post ;)

Ok as you all know that I am bitten by the acetate bug, I made one yesterday also, I am holding that one for a while before I post.
Using acetate is very easy, and I find stamping on acetate is fun and very forgiving, all you need is to keep a wet wipe handy, if you make a mistake, just wipe immediately, unlike card stock, where you have to think of ways to cover up or trash it ;)

I chose Uniko's bold blooms here, and stamped in Hero Arts Ombre ink, and then used clear embossing powder to heat emboss. The leaves are stamped using the wild wasabi from SU and heat embossed. I fussy cut all to add to the base. I used a white back and a acetate front for my card. I stamped some leaves on acetate, and arranged the flowers and leaves. The flower is cut out in 2 steps to give more dimension.
The sentiment is from Uniko - get well soon set, I lined it with a pale green. That's all, I am calling it a CAS card, and hoping that looking at so many elements people, still consider it CAS. It was a quick make.
I have quite a few pictures, I usually craft in night, and take pictures in the morning under natural light, but I was bit eager to share this card, and hoping I have done justice with the pictures.
